A triple bill of Russian works

THERE’S an all-Russian evening in store when some illustrious overseas visitors perform at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Thursday, February 16.

Conducted by Valery Poliansky, the Russian State Philharmonic Orchestra will be playing Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from his opera Eugene Onegin, plus, later in the programme, the composer’s Fourth Symphony.

Sandwiched in between will be Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No 1, with soloist Natalia Lomeiko.

Tickets are available from the box office on 01332 255800.
